I needed a light hearted movie after a very emotional day. This came up and I took a chance. It was perfect. Yes, it is silly - but that is exactly the point. This is a caper movie, and caper movies are supposed to be silly. From Jerry's (Timothy Spall) throw away lines about every branch of service he has been in (and he has been in ALL of them!), to Manon's (Louise Bourgoin) ingenue turned nascent revolutionary, to the well, the very James Bond aspect of it all (which is winked at more than once by Pierce Brosnan) it is just fun. No, it isn't deep. But it isn't supposed to be. And at the end of the day, there is a very sweet pair of love stories; two views on what love looks like at middle age versus the twenty. The distinction between loving someone and liking them (and how the second is pretty fundamental to the first). If you are looking for a movie that ponders the meaning of life, this isn't it. But if what you want is good old fashioned fun, a bolus of silly, this is it.
